If you are struggling or know someone who is, we invite you to join us for this Bible-based support group for men & women struggling with any addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. Let us walk alongside you as we work toward freedom.
Are you in recovery? Do you need the healing power of Jesus to become free from any addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors? Join us on a journey to freedom in one of our BCC Recovery Groups. For more information, please contact Pastor John Simpson.
- We admitted that we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behavior, that our lives had become unmanageable. (Romans 7:18)
- We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. (Philippians 2:13)
- We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God. (Romans 12:1)
- We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. (Lamentations 3:40)
- We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being, the exact nature of our wrongs. (James 5:16a)
- We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. (James 4:10)
- We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings. (1 John 1:9)
- We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. (Luke 6:31)
- We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. (Matthew 5:23-24)
- We continued to take personal inventory and, when we were wrong, promptly admitted it. (1 Corinthians 10:12)
- We sought through prayer and mediation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out. (Colossians 3:16a)
- Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs. (Galatians 6:1)
8 RECOVERY PRINCIPLES
- Realize I’m not God. I admit that I am Powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable.
- Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him, and that He has the power to help me recover.
- Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.
- Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust.
- Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.
- Evaluate all my relationship. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.
- Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will.
- Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and by my words.
